Lunch with your Government Contracts Lawyer

Compliance with the FCPA

Sheppard Mullin Washington DC office
November 13, 2012

All companies doing business with the United States government should have policies to maximize compliance with U.S. contracting requirements. But if you have international business (including foreign manufacturing, sales, affiliates, or vendors) you likely have an additional complication: compliance with the U.S. Foreign Corrupt Practices Act ("FCPA").

Sheppard Mullin's international trade and government contracts experts are uniquely positioned to counsel government contractors in this important area. Partners Scott Maberry and Thad McBride will guide you through a lively and informative session about this topic, including discussion of the following:

  • Key FCPA compliance pitfalls
  • Director and officer liability
  • Current enforcement trends
  • Best practices in compliance
  • Internal investigations: how to protect the company and not break the bank doing it
